Ladies and gentlemen, if you like staying active, the BG-169 series is for you! The BG-169R-8B is a dark grey digital watch, with an aqua blue ring surrounding the display. The gender-neutral colours mean that males and females can both feel comfortable wearing it.
Being digital only, means there’s plenty of space for the numbers and the letters of days on the screen. Not only that, but unlike with analogue/digital combos, when you press the backlight button, the whole screen lights up, making it easy to read even at night.
Whether you’re a footy player, swimmer, or cricketer, etc… the watch will suit your high impact needs. It’s got 100m shock resistance, along with a face protector, which can protect your watch from any bumps or bruises while you play. It also has 200m water resistance, so you can swim and dive, without taking the watch off.

So speedy review by Susan B on 15/07/2017
When I bought this I expected a few days for delivery. Instead, 8 AM the doorbell rings, and it's the postie delivering my watch! AWESOME!!
Interesting watch review by Vanessa H on 13/07/2017
Lots of features in such a small watch! Pretty interesting too, I had never heard of the telememo before but looks usefulGreat backup in case my phone dies. Not 100% happy with the colour but it's ok
Good protection review by Danni G on 2/07/2017
This is a great watch. I'm loving the face guards too, especially since they protect not only the front, but also the back of the watch. Been taking it everywhere with me
Great for small wrists review by Dean T on 15/06/2017
I hate having to buy watches because my wrist is small... Glad I found this one though, it looks good on me and I really like the gender neutral look
Lightweight! review by Jordan R on 1/06/2017
I love this watch! Usually watches are pretty heavy but this one is so light I barely feel it! Also love how big the screen is!!
